Apartment 1B has been on my list of restaurants to try for years now but its Makati address always turns me off with the infamous Manila traffic and over the top parking fees. While I always look into the places we are supposed to visit, I've been busy juggling stuff before our The Henry Manila staycation so imagine my surprise seeing the Apartment 1B logo proudly displayed by the lobby's entrance. When CS asked me if I wanted to have lunch there, I immediately said YES!
Service was on point; the servers expertly explained to us the menu while we browse thinking what to get. With its cozy and intimate ambiance, Apartment 1B is your perfect venue for special celebrations with family, friends, or your significant other.
Besides, the pricey menu is quite steep for the working class' everyday dining.
On the table
|Fresh Dalandan Juice - Php130.00|
It was refreshing! Pure and freshly-squeezed dalandan to beat the summer heat. I would have loved to order another glass but settled with service water as I was taken aback with the price tag.
|Three Cheese Vegetable Lasagna - Php580.00|
Both orders were amazing! Comfort food taken to the next level with no less than excellent ingredients in every bite. My Cheesy Meatballs was as rich, cheesy, and flavorful as it can get, good thing it was accompanied by sliced baguette to balance the strong flavors. Not my idea of my first Apartment 1B meal as I was looking forward to trying out their Eggs Benedict for the longest time but meatballs topple eggs benedict anytime, anywhere!
We simply couldn't resist trying out Adam's Ice Cream for dessert (yes, its priced at Php360.00 for a 240ml pot) so we agreed on getting The Infanta's Favorite -- fresh grade-A Madagascar vanilla, Spanish brandy, and roasted hazelnuts. The tagline says it all because it was seriously good!
